They might as well rename this "Skyscraper Enthusiast Station" until at least 2030.

Wow! I'm surprised with the work they had done so far for the boulevard.

On the other side of 34th they have a similar Hudson Blvd Park (minus the subway entrance) built on top of a parking garage they blasted (I assume) into the rock...

This ~5 week old ILNY photo shows the stretch of Hudson Park Blvd I mentioned above.

Photo by ILNY Feb 1, 2014. looking south from 35th St, with assumed parking garage entrance in foreground left. Even with this lousy winter they would have made progress in the last 5 weeks, so maybe this section laso has lampposts:

I agree, they can do much better but it's not bad.

According to this chart, 1.3m sf is planned for this tower. They probably transferred the rest to 35 or 50 Hudson. Doesn't this orig have 2 m sf ?

That West office tower has 2 m sf! That should be a tall one. Hopefully.

Got ya! Yea News Corp is a real possibility especially now with the debacle going on at the WTC site betw Silverstein & the PA. If Tower 3 will not be approved, I fear it will be an embarrassment for the WTC complex moving forward.

50 Hudson and 2 WTC are the only towers with that kind of space to accommodate News Corp.

It's clear IMO, related definitely has something lined up for both 50 & 55 Hudson.

I'm still privately pulling for News Corp for the WTC for tower 2. When Murdock purchased the penthouses at One Madison with amazing views of the WTC complex I took it as a good omen for 2 WTC.

He notoriously likes to keep a close eye with all of his operations and thus the reason for the desire to consolidate everything in 1 roof, so when he's home he just has to look at tower 2 and be reassured that everything is good in his universe. Lol.

Same here. Especially considering Extell's previous design for this spot. It was my favorite in the neighborhood.

It's a shame that whenever a developer takes over a site that invariably means that the existing design is shredded.

I wonder whether there are valid legal or business reasons or whether it is mostly a case of big egos and not invented here syndrome. You don't need a wholesale redesign just to add or remove a few floors to fit a business case. Either way, in cases like this it is a shame, architecturally speaking.

I loved the latticed design... this looks for such a visually appealing project so far a big misfire. Hopefully the final plan will be better, and this isn't it. I really don't want the bulky stepladder approach for 50 Hudson, either that has been shown. Might as well put two dull but not jarring Brookfield type towers, conservative but at least look good if not stand out.

Why does the building look worse now? A redesign is supposed to improve the aesthetics of the building you stupid architects.

Oh well I still kinda like it.

It looks like they redesigned 35 HY, too. And not for the better.

Is that the cylindrical one? I think it still looks great, and taller (Higher than 1100 feet)

The base really sucks though

The base is okay, the only thing that's changed is the height of 35 seems closer to 1,100 ft. The redesign from the staggered layers to the transformation from rectangular to cylindrical doesn't look any different. 50 Hudson though looks like the plain adopted child... a throwback to bulky post war architecture that doesn't belong in this jewel of a new soaring neighborhood. It just sits there, doesn't blend in it all well.

I was with you til the last sentence. I'd rather have the reclad, newly glass Manhattan West 5 (the brutalist looking building going a makeover) with some added height rather than this plain boxy dreck.

I find it funny that Related is calling this planned tower their boutique tower when it’s just a straight up box and I agree they can definitely do much-much better.

The design of the towers on the western part of phase 1 are more forward thinking and less traditional with 15 & 35 Hudson and they should do the same with 55 Hudson and sort of follow the same architectural plan of Phase 1.

So if it’s not going to be a tall one then they should make this “boutique” tower pretty exciting design wise.

I sure hope so, because both earlier designs were much better... the latticed one and the interesting roof design when it was first shortened.
